Fangasm: Supernatural Fangirls tells of a psychologist and a literary scholar who both fell in love with the TV show Supernatural and thus entered the world of fans and fandom. This book documents popular culture and fans and provides academic analysis into the process of what it is to be such a fan, examining the community of fans, internet promotions and fandom, film writing and promotion, and more. It's hard to neatly peg FANGASM: at once social commentary, film industry analysis, and interviews of celebrity's fans, this is a lively and readable account that delves into the hearts and minds of media fans. Any social issues or film studies library will find this a lively and winning pick.
